Katy, Texas (May 28, 2019) – Members Choice Credit Union (MCCU), a full-service financial institution based in Houston Texas, held its Annual Meeting on May 21 to discuss the organization’s past performance, talk about current initiatives, and discuss what’s on the horizon for the next year.
Johnny Williams, chairman of the board of directors for MCCU, addressed the packed room, saying that the turnout for the meeting “confirms that we’re on a member-focused path.”
As members of the credit union, those in attendance had the opportunity to elect four board members. These volunteer board members are responsible for the general oversight of the credit union and steering the organization both in the short-term and long-term to benefit its members. Gene Atteberry, Wilfred Krenek, Tonya Jordan and Edgar Conner, Jr. were all re-elected as returning board members.
Randy Theilig, president and CEO of MCCU, provided an overview of the organization’s accomplishments in 2018, stating that the leadership and staff of the credit union remain focused on three key areas:
- Access to financial products, tool and technologies for members
- Commitment to financial empowerment/education
- Giving back to the community
“It’s important for us to keep up with the changing technology by continuously adding new applications and features to our online and mobile banking platforms,” said Randy. “At the same time, adding more physical branches will be part of our strategy moving forward.”
“Along with population growth, MCCU recognizes the emergence of small and medium businesses in the area,” said Randy. “Traditionally credit unions don’t cater to businesses, but that’s a differentiator for us. Currently, we provide a full suite of business solutions to serve our more than 1,900 business accounts, which continues to grow as well.”
MCCU is also in the business of serving the community. In 2018, MCCU partnered with numerous nonprofit organizations in the Houston area, donating funds and volunteer time. In total, MCCU reports that its volunteers gave over 1300 service hours in 2018. MCCU was also the presenting sponsor for “Giving Tuesday Katy 2018,” an effort that raised $100,000 for area nonprofits. The credit union contributed nearly $7,000 for the cause.
The Annual Meeting wrapped up with door prizes and giveaways. Those in attendance had the opportunity to win a variety of different prize packs, all courtesy of local business including Nothing Bundt Cakes, Cobblestone Market Café, Chick-Fil-A, and Hasta La Pasta. For each prize awarded, MCCU matched the dollar amount and donated to one of five area charities: Citizen for Animal Protection, Cypress Assistance Ministries, Katy Cares, Memorial Assistance Ministries, and Texas Children’s Hospital. With the member-designated charity match, MCCU donated over $1,000 that evening.
